Why is Barbie poorly dressed nowadays?


New Member
I can't help but notice that many of today's Barbies have cheap and tacky clothing!

It looks like she shops for clothing at Walmart!

Compare that to Barbie a decade ago!

What happened? Did parents pressured the toy companies to go in this direction?

It's possible. But all consumers have a say in the styles that Barbie wears. As an interested consumer/customer, I would recommend contacting Mattel and letting them know. The consumer ultimately has the final say. If we're not happy (and we don't buy their product), they'll go out of business.
The purse has the power. ;)
